Pihu is growing up and she will be a 23-year-old with the show’s next leap
Ekta Kapoor cast Aanchal Munjal as the 15-year-old Pihu and is now in talks with Fenil Umrigar to play Ram Kapoor’s grown up daughter.
Fenil Umrigar, who was last seen in Best Friends Forever on Channel V is fair, has the innocent yet naughty eyes and can look like she is in her early 20’s with a little make up. We believe the actor is talented and knows her craft well as witnessed in her previous shows like Shapath, Gumraah, Saubhagyavati Bhava and Maryaada.
Fenil has the childlike charm which will work well for Pihu’s character – that’s if she is really doing the role. Moreover, she is already a popular face among teenagers; a stint in Bade Acche Lagte Hain will not only help her fan base but will also help the show reach a wider audience.
The current track of the daily soap which revolves Pihu’s prom night fiasco with Varun is believed to lead to the big leap. Last week we mentioned how Priya will be in a state of coma and Ram will break his ties with Pihu. It would be interesting to see how Fenil takes the story ahead from there. Though she isn’t the perfect choice, Fenil is no doubt a good one to play Pihu. What do you think BollywoodLifers?
